Mohammad is a 64-year-old married man and a father to two sons and four daughters. Mohammad has a pension salary as a source of income. He was a worker and received a low salary so his income doesn’t cover all his required expenses. He is living in an uncompleted house in Jenin. Mohammad and his family live in a home that is not suitable to live in. Mohammad is requesting a 1,000 USD loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing necessary materials to fix his house. This will enable Mohammad and his family to enjoy living in suitable home conditions. Mohammad appears in the photo.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
